In honour of Canada’s 150 years the Italian Cultural Centre is unveiling its Giovanni Caboto series which will focus on immigrant communities and the diverse cultural heritages they have introduced to Vancouver. This exhibition will examine through pictures, cultural items and oral interviews the significance of the genres of Cantonese and Italian opera as a means to maintain cultural identity in times of transition and even upheaval. Performances in both opera genres will be included in the programming during the run of this exhibition. The exhibition’s opening night will be held within the museum from 7:00pm to 9:00pm, where light refreshments will be served. Admission to this event is free.
